“Great views and great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Don't let first impressions fool you! A very smooth operation that provided a real grin inducing experience. The ebullient and knowledgable owner gave us a great tour of the countryside by quads after we had completed basic skills training on the quads first. We were provided with safety gear; boots, helmets and gloves, and overcoats for those that wanted.
The views were amazing and we were sat on top of the valley watching the buzzards soar below us.
Great fun and recommended. There's also plenty more to do than the quads!

“Hearty fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a working farm and this is reflected in its beautiful location and rather tired reception which happens to be the old hen house! However, this adds to the experience and the safety talk and warm up laps helped to build confidence on the quad bikes. I was a bit of a chicken but luckily this was recognised so myself and another girl had our own personal guide who took us on a gentler route more suited to our nervous dispositions. We then went clay pidgeon shooting- this is contracted out to the local clay pidgeon shooting club but still on the farm. They were fantastic- excellent safety talk and guidance - I was thrilled to hit 5/5 clays on my first ever attempt. They were good natured and humorous and it was a lovely end to a fantastic afternoons activities.

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Some of the wettest weather this summer and we were whizzing across fields in the Welsh Hills on quads - absolutely fantastic.
On arrival we thought that the place looked a bit run down but it had everything. We were offered rainproof gear, they had boots for those who had turned up without suitable footwear and at all times, safety was paramount. There was no way that the boss was letting anyone out on the fields before they had gone through an intensive training session. And they don't stand for any crazy nonsense - one chap from another group (stag party) found himself sent back to base after he fooled around and caused an accident.
We have quad biked many times but this has to be one of the best organised and most fun we have had.

“fun fun fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

if you want something different go for the clay pigeon shooting i joined a group of 8 ladies but the minimum seems to be 6 people when you shoot one down its so exciting
the instructors were friendly but proffesional with the safety aspect
when you arrive a land rover takes you to the shoot you can have tea and coffee while you wait
then there 3 booths where you shoot with easy then harder then 2 bullets and 2 clays
they give you a score sheet to take home you can even have a winner who buys the drinks lol! you can then go quad biking which i didnt book for but i will return

Hi Anne,

Glad you had a good time on Sunday. It is a thrilling activity and luckily we had other ladies you could join onto so worked well. Ladies can find it hard on times but you all done very well.

We look forward to seeing you for the quad biking ;-)
